Sponsored by isoc-ny, Eben Moglen, counsel for Richard Stallman and the Free Software Foundation, gave a talk that gave a general background on the principles of the Free Software movement, and addressed specific details as how it's spread is developing, especially as it affects communications and media. Afterwards there was a lengthy Q&A session which is part2 here. The files are in two formats: 1) mp4, is h.264/AAC and is iPod compatible, and 2) ogg theora. Both are streamable @ around 600kpbs. I suggest pasting the ogg links Pt.1 | Pt.2 directly into the VLC player as the best way to go.

Not an old rehash
This is a really great talk. Most Free/Open-source propoganda is just a rehash of old material, but Moglen here gives some great insights from off the beaten path.
